Smarter Speed Humps

Smarter Speed Humps

Speed Humps are a very effective solution in slowing commuters to a safe driving speed. However, for all its benefits, there are some major downfalls to the humble speed hump. Speed humps force drivers to go well below the speed limit to safely travel over the bump, creating inefficiencies, as well as car using more petrol and making more noise to travel the same distance. Speed humps can also damage car suspensions and cause discomfort or injury to car occupants, particularly if they are elderly, infants or injured. This is where the future of speed humps provide  ...read more

A driver’s lucky escape

With lack of concentration, a commuter accidentally pushed down the accelerator which had his car reversing into a Glen Waverley petrol bowser. Flames erupted and thick, toxic smoke egressed from the car. The quick acting attendant saved the man from the massive fireball. “It was my mistake. I was just trying to reverse the car,” a visibly shaken Mr Ramakrishnan told 7 News. Firefighters arrived almost immediately, trying to stop the flames, but the car and the petrol bowser were already damaged. They believe a spark from the car, most likely   ...read more

No protection at shop front crash

An 88-year old woman has lost control of her car, ploughing into a café in suburban Geelong. A café visitor was thrown across the floor in the incident which is believed to have been caused by the elderly woman mistaking her accelerator for her brake. 7 News footage of the aftermath shows the café had a lack of bollard protection.

The gentler side of speed humps

Speeding in car parks is an incredibly dangerous thing to do, but with shoppers racing for parking spots, it is an all too common occurrence. Speed Humps provide an effective solution for slowing down cars forcing commuters to drive at a safer speed. However, many speed humps have steep inclines making it uncomfortable for drivers and passengers passing over them, particularly children, babies and the disabled. It also can be strenuous on car suspensions and can aggravate or cause spinal injuries. This is why our speed humps are designed to provide a gentle drive over   ...read more

Ram raid attack… just for a snack

The extent to which criminals go to just to satisfy their desires is becoming very damaging to the overall fabric of society. In recent times, the level of violent ram-raiding criminals have significantly increased. This increase is partly due to the intensity of rising street gangs based in the outer suburbs of Melbourne. In the early morning hours on the 21st of July, an unattended petrol station in Rowville was targeted. The criminals had successfully ram-raided the front entrance and consequentially stole the goods they had come for. The ram-raiding thieves   ...read more

Disrupting the bollard industry with the Spalding Bollard

Disrupting the bollard industry with the Spalding Bollard

The word ‘disrupt’ has been heard in just about every second sentence in tech marketing in recent years, and while it is a little gimmicky, it does have a powerful meaning. To disrupt is to not just walk the same path as everyone else but to venture out and challenge the status quo. And we believe something as ‘mundane’ as the bollard industry can be ‘disrupted’ with forward thinking design. When most people think bollards, they think a boring metal pole which sticks out of the ground, which for the most part is ok because it is doin  ...read more

Childcare explosion a near miss!

In the early hours of Monday morning a wild police car chase broke out in the Melbourne West suburb of Tarneit. In the chaos that ensued the driver lost control of his vehicle which careered into a local childcare centre.
